    Quebec results good for Canada Shift in power may lead to interesting political times across the nation Lorne Gunter, The Edmonton Journal Published: Sunday, April 01, 2007 Friday afternoon, the co-hosts of a weekly political digest show on a Montreal radio station called to ask me what Albertans thought of the results of Monday's Quebec election. I couldn't say what Albertans' reaction was, but this Albertan's thought was: It's too early to tell, but things look interesting and positive. The National Assembly is now split roughly into thirds. The Liberals have 48 seats, a loss of 28 from 2003....

  • Conrad Black: Dumont poised to be new Duplessis

    Conrad Black: Dumont poised to be new Duplessis National Post Saturday, March 31, 2007 The largely negative reaction to the Quebec election in federalist Canada is astounding. Independentist sentiment in that province has collapsed to barely over a quarter of the vote, where it was 35 years ago. The ADQ leader, who is now the leader of the Opposition, Mario Dumont, represents at least the partial return of the Duplessis formula of getting non-separatist nationalists and conservatives to vote together, a delicate but useful operation. And this election is the beginning of a revival of fiscal and social conservatism in...

    Nurse on cutting edge of treatment for MS Saturday, December 4, 2004 A 41-year-old Dumont man on Friday became one of the first in the nation to receive a recently approved drug that is expected to offer new hope to many multiple sclerosis patients. The medication, Tysabri, was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration on Nov. 23, after just one year of clinical trials, because of its effectiveness in reducing the flare-ups of multiple sclerosis, while producing few side effects. "I'm looking at this as an early Christmas present,'' said Joe Giles, a nurse and director of critical...

    May 26, 2004 Japan makes first al-Qaeda arrests in dawn raids FROM RICHARD LLOYD PARRY IN TOKYO Japan made its first move against radical Islamic suspects today, when police raided ten sites and arrested five foreigners suspected of plotting to set up an al-Qaeda cell. The five men - three Bangladeshis, one Indian and one citizen of Mali - were arrested for alleged forgery and breaking immigration laws. But in briefings to Japanese journalists, detectives made it clear that they will be questioned as the country's first suspected Islamic terrorists. Apart from the Red Army Faction, a defunct group of...

    TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese police arrested five foreigners on Wednesday after carrying out their first raids in a widening probe of suspected al Qaeda activities centering on a French national who spent over a year in Japan. Police searched 10 locations following media reports last week that Lionel Dumont, who was arrested in Germany last December, was trying to build up a base in Japan to support al Qaeda among a network of foreigners in the country. Dumont, a French national of Algerian descent, is suspected of being involved in delivering equipment and funds to al Qaeda during his stay...

    MONTREAL - CBC News predicts a Liberal majority government in Quebec, making Jean Charest the next premier of the province. It is Charest's first victory as leader of the provincial party after stepping down as leader of the federal Progressive Conservatives. The Liberals defeated the ruling Parti Quebecois and Bernard Landry; and Mario Dumont's upstart Action Démocratique du Québec. All three party leaders won their ridings. In his concession speech, Landry thanked party supporters and congratulated Charest. "I have to congratulate very warmly the leader of the Liberal party who has conducted his troops to a very impressive victory...

    When McVeigh smiled a content grin before he was killed, could it be it was because he knew 9/11 was coming. It was a grin saying I know something you don't. Thoughts?
